Bugti (Balochi: بگٹی), is a Baloch tribe of Rind Origin and they inhabit the region of Dera Bugti. They are divided into various clans such as Rahija, Mandawani, Kiazai, Kalpar [Habibani],[sundrani], Nauthani, Masuri or Mashori, Ferozani, Salamaan Zai, Mundarani, Qasimani, Shambani, Sobazai, Pahi, Maretha , Domb and Moharkanzai etc.
The area of Dera Bugti is situated in a hill range, comprising the tribal tract known as Bugti area. They are situated in a westward continuation of the Sulaimān Range, pointing towards the Quetta node. The area these nomadic Bugtis inhabit is barren. Bugtis occupy the hills to the east of the Sind-Peshin railway, between Jacobabad and Sibi. Karez for irrigation is a common practice.
Tribes and chiefs
The Bugti chiefs are now exiled by the Pakistan Army for their acts against the state and general population of Dera Bugti. Local waderas are ruling the area under the Pakistan Army. They committed grave sins against their own tribes men. Close relatives of Akbar Bugti were involved in kidnapping and mass extortions. They killed many innocent people on the Indus Highway in Rojhan, Rajanpur District. It is widely alleged that Brahamdagh Bugti is being funded by RAW to fuel insurgency in Balochistan. Some people says that they are long gone and will never rule Dera Bugti again. They are a part of history now.
